Final Fantasy VIII Remastered celebrates its 20th anniversary by bringing the epic JRPG to modern platforms, featuring newly rendered visuals that breathe life into the game’s characters like never before. Players step into the shoes of SeeD recruit Squall Leonhart and resistance fighter Rinoa Heartilly as they work together to save the world from the military nation of Galbadia.

The remastered version includes the following boosts to enhance the experience:
